16 Tons and What Do You Get Another Day....

Remember the song of 16 Tons by Tennessee Ernie Ford. It reveals a life of work, work and work some more. We teach online as you know. The temptation to move into the work, work and work some more life is high. You know how it goes. "Oh, let me just check email." Several hours later you are still at the computer.

A life without hobbies, holidays, spiritual renewing times and just enjoying the sunshine [in the Pacific Northwest it is a here today and gone tomorrow situation with sunshine] misses the whole purpose of the "Urban Farm", Abundant Living and Sustainable Life.

My husband and I are reminding each other to take days off for fun. How do you keep from the 16 Tons life? Judy
